SANTO DOMINGO. - The Environment Ministry, the Hispaniola Ornithological Society, the National Zoo and Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust (DWCT), through the UK Darwin Initiative, launched a project to protect and Solenodonte, and the Hutia, of the same genus, both endemic to Hispaniola and endangered.

The Jaragua Group, The Nature Conservancy, the Samana Bay and Environs Conservation Center  (CEBSE), the Punta Cana Ecological Foundation and the farmers’ movement MCCQ will take part in the two-day activity, among other organizations.

The event aims to draw up a plan to ensure both species’ long term survival, prioritizing the threats against them. The Solenodonte, is an anteater-type mammal, while the Hutia resembles a groundhog,

Both species currently coexist in the Massif la Hotte and Massif de la Selle in the west of Haiti, and in Sierra Bahoruco, and the National parks Jaragua, Los Haitises, of the East, Punta Cana, among other areas in Dominican Republic.

Far better reflects Joseana after his third straight National defeat. I see how much Josea loves that PRD victory in NYC. After not having his promised PRD "botella", I guess that's his only consolation: Cabby NYC drivers.

This island, almost devoid of native fauna, has just two native mammal species, both endangered, and the only comments this article attracts are childish insults. No wonder the environment is fu(ked!

Roy,

But your you're the guy defending mining and rediculing the "feral peasants" who are trying to protect the habitat of these and other threatened species!

Josean,
Are you kidding? The feral peasants couldn't care less about these threatened species, and are a far bigger threat to their habitat than the mining companies.

I am sure you'd meant "extintion”; I am cool with it ‘cause I can’t stand Hipo (super ladron).

The Dominican Republic is one of the few remaining countries where cock-fighting is still legal. No animal is safe there (especially Homo sapiens).

I believe cock-fighting is legal in Oklahoma, Arizona, New Mexico, Missouri and Louisiana, but has been illegal in Britain since 1849.

Now what does that tell you?
